    EFI Boot hanged with the message --Trying to allocate XXX pages for VMLINUZ

    EFI Boot hanged with the message --Trying to allocate XXX pages for VMLINUZ

    Issue: IBM EFI Boot hanged with below message when using serial console Trying to allocate 985 pages for VMLINUZ.

    Resolution:

    The server may be rebooting , but it is not showing anything in the console.
    1. We can bypass uefi mode in BIOS and change it to normal BIOS mode.
    2. Once it is booted we need to use "splashimage" in grub.conf option enable to see the boot message when using serial console.
    3. Verify  that splash Image path is accessible, i.e /boot/efi is properly mounted.
